1995 Fattoria di Fèlsina Berardenga Chianti Classico Riserva

Chianti Classico DOCG Sangiovese more

5/24/2015 - ronte bello Does not like this wine: NR

Kirsch bouquet. Drank very nicely for an hour or two before turning very tart and became, to my taste, undrinkable. Good underlying cherry fruit. Previous bottles were better, but still developed the tartness.

Dark brick red. Excellent. Fruit and earth in front with well structured acidity, and a long sour cherry finish. Great with Mozza pizza.

A beautifully deep, bricking color. A complex and compelling, savory nose of dark cherry, wet leaves, tobacco, prune and dried herbs. Very vivid and nuanced. On the palate first mouth caressingly silky, then the polished tannins emerge, gripping quite powerfully. Completely dry, yet abound with sweet, almost liquor-like cherry fruit, along with some iron and leather notes. Pleasantly coarse and extremely bright with great sense of vitality. Finishes very dry but balanced and tangy. Absolutely devoid of fat or notes of oak, this is a beautifully matured and integrated Sangiovese (or -veto, whatever) with all the vibrant acidity one would wish for. Not going downhill but I would guess that this is peaking right now, at least for my personal preferences.

Better than my last bottle. Nice core of dried red cherry fruit, with a hint of tartness keeping it fresh. Oak was more integrated this time. Lengthy finish. Great food fine. A little darker fruit profile and color than many sangiovese. 92-93. Can be drunk now with air or hold 3yrs.

5/22/2015 - mullerlele Likes this wine: 90 points

Mild nose with cherry and plum dominated taste on the palate. There is also a slight note of black chocolate blended in fairly high acidity. But the general balance is good and the tannin is very fine and sweet. Did not feel like a 30 year old bottle - judging by the progression of wine in the cork and amazingly high fill level in the bottle, maybe it was not laid down all the time in the cellar. But drink now, as I do not see any further aging potential.

Not sure on this one. A bit musty and slight off nose. Wondered if it might have been corked. Will try another bottle to see.

still rubin red at the eye, an explosion of scent in the baloon, with red ripe fruit and a very elegant oak prevailing. In the mouth round tannins and a very balanced acidity make this wine a very pleasant pairing with fiorentina T bone steak. Hints of light smoked leather and light graphite. Agree with previous notes : an old-style Sangiovese. But very classy. Long life ahead. With Matt in a fresh and rainy evening around The Table.

very pretty mature chianti. Cork starting to fail but wine was good, orangey brown around the edges but wine in balance and better with time as it opened up. Not a perfect pairing with basil pesto but hung in there well...very nice

Tight and closed upon opening. Good, but it's true character was still hidden. Day 2 was better, lighter with more flavor. Day 3 is best - cedar really pops out, secondary flavors of leather and tobacco, light spice. Could age longer and still perform, no problem. Will buy more.

5/17/2015 - Eric Guido Likes this wine: 94 points

The nose was rich, almost sappy and savory, with intense dark red fruits, plum, spices, tobacco, sweet herbs and earthy minerality. On the palate, it was youthfully firm, persistent and angular, with focused cherry and strawberry fruit, hints of cinnamon and minerals. The finish was firm with palate-coating minerality and dried red fruits. A wine of serious potential, yet many years away from its drinking window.

Wie beim letzten Mal ist mir die Tannenhonig/Malznote einfach zu dominant.Aber anscheinend wird sie ja sonst von niemandem wahrgenommen.

Very nice Chianti. Smooth supple tannins. Hints of strawberry, currants, blackberry. Drank this over an hour or so. Felsina always seems to be on the mark.

One of my favourite basic Chiantis. Great cherry sweet and sour aromas with leather and spices. Quite firm with good acidity and young tannins. Great value. Drink now and 2-3 years.

What a bouquet! It features crushed black rocks, graphite, oodles of dark berry fruit, black farm soil, ethanol, petrol derivatives, and sanguinity. Focused, precise, and rich palate that delivers an attention grabbing attack, lush and juicy mid range, and a layered, gripping finish of incredible length. Possibly the most rounded and delicious CC I have tasted.

An enigmatic offering that seemed somewhat flat overall. Solid substance, ample structure, very good acid. Came off less impressive next to the same producer's 2012 CC...and at 3x the price...the CC represents ridiculous vale.

PnP. Dark red. Classic Sangiovese scents of spice and smoke. Still a bit lean on the palate but with excellent depth; not generous at this point but still with upside potential, as the depth of fruit and buried tannins are still very much present. More developed than the '06 but not singing like an '07 was a few weeks ago.

This wine just does not disappoint. Drank from 375 ml bottle. See my notes from 2014 08 01. Little more advanced but still long ways to go. Very drinkable now and very enjoyable.

Lovely sweet rustic nose, of blood, sous bois, dark dried cherries, and mushrooms that just pulls you into the glass. Lovely palate follows, with some nice subdued cherry notes, earth, some nice acidity and some smooth rounded tannins. This is drinking extremely well. It has been stored perfectly since release, and I would guess this will last a few more years at least. A day later still going strong. A bit more subdued, both on the nose and palate, but the core nose and flavor are still there. The tannins are a bit more subdued. The nose has a bit more blood and less of the sweeter cherry and mushroom notes. The palate is a bit more focused and contained, still that rustic earthiness of an Italian wine. Still some tannic notes on the back end of the finish.

Italians, Bordeaux and a few more with friends (An upscale Italian Restaurant in Cleveland): Loved this wine. In a really great place right now. Just a bit on the younger side of peak. The nose has cherries, tart cherries, slight orange zest, spice and dust. On the palate, layers of jammy tart cherries, spice and even a slight salinity. Complex and layered while still being youthful. Got better all night. IIRC, this is 100% Sangiovese. Great with food. No hurry, but worth checking into now. I love Brunello, but the Sangiovese's from Felsina just as often outperform them for me.
